A Level Maths is an essential requirement for many degrees.  These tend to be STEM subjects (e.g. Engineering, Computer Science, Physics) but also subjects such as Actuarial Sciences, and Economics.

There are many other degrees where A Level Maths is often part of the entry criteria, especially at Russell Group universities.  As well as the sciences these also include arts and humanities such as Geography, Philosophy and Architecture.  Some universities may ask for A Level Maths for entry onto medical related degree programmes such as Medicine, Veterinary Sciences, Optometry and Pharmacy.
